Otherwise, a really lovely pouch for your daily essentials...
Cotton, interfaced and lined with orange. One cute pocket inside.
Approx 8" by 7"
Spoken for! Super cute fabric I totally covet and costed the earth but I had to share. I promise I'll just hoard a small piece since my fabric collection is literally getting out of hand and also some yelling from cohabiting parties. *laughs*
These are from Sanrio Japan so its good stuff. Coupled with Japanese denim famous for their wash and style & selected by me (*eye roll*) you know its gotta be fabulous!
Dawn is grabbing the mini too so I'm sending to her free, since she's in Singapore anyways.
Thats all for now.
In the other news, my cold is still bad and the haze is worse. I tried jogging today to ease my nose. Let's hope things would change. Not to mention exams are coming and I need to hit my books even though I really want to continue sewing. ;+)
Check out what I found the other day! The new winter edition of Cotton Friend and the old summer edition too. I'm so backward on my reading. Couldn't help skipping over to the bookstore. Glad I did! Love these magazines. Oh and I got some linen too. Its so big in Japan right now. Never used to like linen till I met some of these Japanese linen. Fabulous quality!
Can't wait to have fun with them!
Inspired by my dad, and dedicated to him. He's a marine engineer and the words Eastern Anchorage is often heard by me when I was very young and somehow they got stuck on to me. I'm a word nazi! Also known as a linguist. ;+)Anchor was personally drawn out by me, which inadvertently made me realise how painful it is to draw out one.
Big enough for Vogue to go in diagonally, fuss-free and pretty!
Get yourself a fabulous tote...

Aren't they cute?! It was for a good cause.
"All the proceeds from the purchase of this item will go straight to our "Girl Power" group for whatever activity the girls choose to do. The girls are ages 8-14 and they live in a residential treatment center for kids with emotional and behavioral problems. The focus of our "Girl Power" group is self empowerment in a safe and fun atmosphere."
Go here to support the cause. On etsy of course!
And in the other note, my fantastic fabrics arrived.
One from Lemonade.etsy.com who included so many goodies with some scrap fabric, I'd want to hug her if I ever could!
And also my lovely lovely Gold Holly fabric arrived from Courtney. She had it in a really cute package with a small cute card in an envelope! It was all so fun! And she had the nicest comments too...
And, my oh-so-precious stash from Atelier Jade arrived this afternoon. Couldn't resist a snap.
Its mine. All MINE! Don't even think about it! *LOL*
What a lovely woman! The fabrics were generous, the sweets were over-the-top!
I love Kumi-san. Hope her daughter gets well soon and be a very lovely healthy girl. ^__^
And I've been sewing up a storm!! And buying Christmas fabric stash too. I really really really wanna have a Christmas collection! I never did have one! *wails*
Friend said, "But since when did you not fabric-shop? *eye roll*"
It wasn't funny. I made up 5 purses today which I'm not showing yet. I've just sewn labels on another 23 more raw purses which I will try to finish within the next few days and take a fabulous shot of them together. *LOL + eye roll* I feel like a basement sweatshop already.
Its going to be a Japanese/French collection because so many wonderful crafters inspired this one.
And also, I was hoping my other purses would be picked up by some nice people!
Oh, this really cute girl picked up 3 of my purses, including the new dotted line one which was up for less than a day!
Seriously, I feel so lucky. I started etsy just 2 months and people have been so supportive, I wanna cry on their shoulders! They have enabled me to continue purchasing wonderful quality fabrics for more purses and also for supporting other etsyers who didn't have the same luck I did.
just a short post to say that I will try not to post re-runs of purses here since they take up space for new designs. You can either check my shop, or haggle me for it.
My fabrics are strictly limited to about 6 - 8 purses only. Sometimes less, it depends on the fabric size. So if they run out, it really depends on if I can obtain more of the fabric. Otherwise, look out for spanking new designs! ;+) Haggle me.
My exams are in december so things might be slow from november onwards to bury myself in my books instead of my fabrics even though I love fabrics more!
But I will launch my latest collection and be back for Christmas! ;+)
You know I love you people. Every single one of you.
Have you seen chrissange06.etsy.com? She is cute, her stuff is cute, and she's new! I suggested a swap and she happily agreed! I love this girl. Her avatar looked too cute to be true. Then she allude that she had a daughter. How cute is that now? Did I mention she's French? Mai Oui to Christine's Tres Cute shoppe!
And guess what? I found her because she hearts me! Can you believe it? Its a personal habit of mine to visit the "Hearts Me" section of etsy... Its a darn good thing I did!
I swapped 3 purses for her cute pink dot round-bottom tote with a hanging cutie, so cute, I forgot how it looked like. :P She took it off etsy for me. Then I couldn't resist her Petite Souris either. So I grabbed that.
Her description "A keyring "little mouse" who 'll keep your keys. Or you can hang up on your bag. She is not afraid with cats ;)"
How Cute is this? *__*
Go Quick before I buy up her very few things. Seriously.
One and only design.
Delicate silver with a military tag. What could illustrate a contrast better?
Insipred by urban boys and sophisticated women in their slinkiest dresses in the still of the night.
Delicate silver fabric, black cotton inside. This silver fabric can wrinkle a bit, which adds to the charm.
Inspired military tag. I have only one of these. They are real tags, heavy metal inside, black plastique covering with swirl design. Totally original and rare.Perfect for your coins, keys, lippy, cards, mints...And for when a big purse is just too much.
5" length, 3.5" height.
Story behind - I had this fabric forever now! But never got the chance to actually use it. On the quiet sunday, I came up with this design. I love the tag a lot too so it was really hard to let it go! Then again, if I loved everything I made, I'd never sell them. Then you guys would never got to have any nice stuff! I have to stop being selfish.
4/10 - It hasn't been a day! Sold to the Lovely Lynn Phan, together with Sweet memories and the slightly warped going dotty. More coming!
Whats on the dotted line this time?
I love this fabric. White cotton with myraid of classic / vintage looking dots on it. Reminds me of the dresses I had to wear in the past when I was tiny, Bowl hairstyle and all. *yikes*
White dot soft cotton and sweet pink cotton interior. Both are interfaced for a sturdy purse.
Green zip. ;+)
One cute pocket inside in a candy pink, slight darker pink than the lining fabric.
One off Felt patches design. They form a weird design on the green strip. One cute matte white button joins in the fun. You either love it or hate it. :P
Actually, I was dying to visit the loo and I thought I'll come up with a design, not to reflect that but maybe something edgy. I think stress brings out the best in people. *laughs*
No Poo on the purse though.

I can't help poting a shout-out. It makes me suicidal. I can't find these fabrics that I want. There's the sheep print, the ones with trees, owls, mushrooms, you name it. They are Japanese canvas, very cute, very elusive. Forget ebay, they kicked me off for god-knows what reason which I don't seem to be able to resolve with them. Not to mention the lousy fees and bad reputation - read LVMH vs. ebay on Reuters. Sorry, ebay-fanatics, but I've been using ebay for 7 years now and for them to ban me for no good reason gives me a darn good reason for me flame them.
Then again, I've got better things to do. Like search for these fabrics.
Unfortunately, I've searched most of where I live and no luck. I also tried Kitty-craft(closed at the moment), Reprodepot, superbuzzy, fabric tales but tnothing yet. Don't get me wrong, they have fantastic fabrics and I've ordered some but nothing like those printed canvas yet.
Then there's this woman who sells them on ebay singapore and she's pretty rude and the prices are crazy, its like 2.5 FQ for average US$30?! I don't think so. She wasn't friendly in her email either. Sorry to the lady, if you're ever reading this.
So etsyers, flickr friends and blog readers...IF YOU EVER COME ACROSS THESE FABRICS, PLEASE, CONTACT ME. I really really want them and if you'd be nice enough to sell them reasonably or swap with my stuff, even my first born, I will seriously consider.
